IRBID — In cooperation with the Bahraini Royal Charity Organisation and the Education Ministry, the Jordan Hashemite Charity Organisation on Monday laid the cornerstone for the Bahrain school for Syrian refugees in Irbid. Education Ministry Secretary General Mohammad Okour said the project will alleviate the burden on over-crowded schools, noting that 130,000 Syrian students attend school at camps and in the various governorates.

The new school will include 23 classrooms in addition to playgrounds and several other facilities.
